The Fog
 
(1980 / dir. by John Carpenter / 91 minutes)
 
Sunday, October 22, 7:00 pm / Mesa Del Sol
 
Dean Cundey was John Carpenter’s cinematographer for the best movies Carpenter ever made. Their collaboration began with Halloween in 1978 and included Escape from New York(1981), The Thing (1982), and Big Trouble in Little China (1986). In The Fog, Carpenter and Cundey reimagine the Bodega Bay of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds (1963) as an eerie, fogbound harbor haunted by the ghosts of California’s colonial history. Cundey’s moody, atmospheric camerawork is matched only by the inimitable voice of Adrienne Barbeau as local late-night radio DJ Stevie Wayne. Still underrated in the pantheon of Carpenter masterpieces, The Fog is the perfect Halloween treat.
 
The fifth in a series of historically significant (and always entertaining) film classics, screened every other weekend throughout the semester.
 
Free and open to all UNM students.
